Insurance & Benefits Group was formed in January, 2001 as a merger between the Maggard Mateja & Thompson, Randy, Russell, and Kendrick-Kerber Insurance Agencies. The three agencies joined forces to become the largest independent insurance agency in Pettis and Johnson Counties, Missouri. With more than 50 years of experience in the insurance industry at that time, IBG built a team of experienced professionals with a wealth of knowledge to help serve its clients.

Atra Insurance combined its operations with Insurance & Benefits Group in May 2015, growing the agency to over 30 licensed agents and support staff. With offices in Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Lee's Summit, the agency provides insurance protection for thousands of individuals, families, and businesses.
